Hacienda Gate

Hacienda Gate


For Lever and Pedal Harp


Frank has taken the tango rhythm in "Autumn Moon" to the next level. This one is so fun to play. Triplets in the right hand melody against the tango rhythm in the left hand. Lots of glisses, lots of interesting melodic and harmonic twists and turns, lots of syncopation, and lots of FUN! It is in the key of G minor, contains several upward glisses, a short arpeggiated cadenza in the middle (easy - hands imitate each other), and nine lever changes (the same four levers twice and one at the end). Your audience will shout, "Ole!"

Please enjoy the YouTube video of Frank's harpist friend in The Netherlands, Carla Bos, playing Hacienda Gate.
